Three is a good number for database servers. It is much easier to add
than to remove or change a db server. So choose the IP numbers for
your db-servers in a way that you won't need to change them often. If
you choose to run your db-servers seperate from your file servers
which have actual file data (/vicep*) on them, you can take you oldest
most stable machines for that purpose. There is really not much HW
needed to run the db-servers.
